In Bad News for Bed Bugs, Ladybug Steam Cleaners Kill the Insects with 260°F Dry Steam

Bed Bugs And Their Eggs Are Rapidly Killed When Exposed To Temperatures Over 113°F

Online PR News – 14-October-2010 – – Bed bugs are here, there and all over. The tiny pests are becoming commonplace just about everywhere—from hotels and movie theaters to department stores and posh homes. People are spending thousands of dollars trying to control the meddlesome critters, but unlike the vampires in those teen “Twilight” movies, these bloodsuckers are real and they won’t just go away. Pesticides once nearly wiped out bed bugs fifty years ago, but the comeback-minded insect has developed resistance to many chemicals today.

“People across the country are bugging out and don’t know how to stop the sneaky hitchhikers,” V.K. Dunlop of explained today. “Almost no area is unbitten. Even the most sterile places like hospitals have become infested.”

Because treating bed bugs professionally is very expensive, people are turning to dangerous, do-it-yourself eradication methods. But chemicals that can eliminate bed bug infestations are rare and by and large ineffective, as bed bugs have developed immunity to certain chemicals used against them. To make matters worse, chemicals can’t reach bed bugs in every nook and cranny where they hide.

“A chemical called propoxur does work better than most,” says Dunlop, but adds, “The EPA banned the highly toxic chemical for home use because it can seriously harm the nervous system of children.”

Fortunately there’s a safe, fast, economical remedy that does not involve using toxic chemicals. It’s called a Ladybug steam cleaner.

Traditionally used to clean and sanitize surfaces without chemicals, professionals and consumers alike are discovering that Ladybug steam cleaners also instantly eliminate bed bugs from clothing, bedding, furniture and structural areas like baseboards.

“More and more people are starting to realize that they don’t have to douse their homes in frightening chemicals,” says Dunlop. “Ladybug steam cleaners convert ordinary tap water to high-temperature dry vapor steam between 245°F and 260°F.”

Bed bugs are and their eggs are rapidly killed when exposed to temperatures over 113°F. It’s a double plus because vapor steam particles are so small, they can reach cracks and crevices chemicals cannot.

With a vapor steam cleaner like the top-selling residential Ladybug Tekno 2350 steam cleaner or the commercial-grade MondoVap 2400 vapor steam sanitization system bed bugs have nowhere to hide and are a thing of the past. And because Ladybug steamers kill bed bugs right away, they can be more economical than chemical alternatives that can take numerous treatments.
